The last time I used grip was 2 years ago and it was KDE 3.1. I am not
sure this functionality was supported at the time, but indeed it sounds
fascinating. The part about CDDB filenames impresses me very much. If it's
really that simple, maybe I should digitise all my CD's. Sounds like a
put-in-tray, drag-and-drop, put-back-on-shelf job. Even a 5-year-old son
or daughter(*) could take care of that. And they say Linux is hard...
